DESCRIPTION BOOK:

At least one out of four people prefers to avoid the limelight, tends to listen more than they speak, feels alone in large groups, and requires lots of private time to restore their energy. They're introverts, and here is the book to help them boost their confidence while learning strategies for successfully living in an extrovert world. After dispelling common myths about introverts-they're not necessarily shy, aloof, or antisocial--The Introvert Advantage explains the real issues. Introverts are hardwired from birth to focus inward, so outside stimulation-chitchat, phone calls, parties, office meetings-can easily become "too much." The Introvert Advantage dispels introverts' belief that something is wrong with them and instead helps them recognize their inner strengths-their analytical skills, ability to think outside the box, and strong powers of concentration. It helps readers understand introversion and shows them how to determine where they fall on the introvert/extrovert continuum. It provides tools to improve relationships with partners, kids, colleagues, and friends, offering dozens of tips, including 10 ways to talk less and communicate more, 8 ways to showcase your abilities at work, how to take a child's temperament temperature, and strategies for socializing. Finally, it shows how to not just survive, but thrive-how to take advantage of the introvert's special qualities to create a life that's just right for the introvert temperament, to discover new ways to expand their energy reserves, and even how, when necessary, to confidently become a temporary extrovert.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Introverted children are often misunderstood, even by their parents, who worry about them. Engaged by their interior world, they’re often regarded as aloof. Easily overwhelmed by too much stimulation, they can be seen as unmotivated. Content with just one or two close friends, they may be perceived as unpopular. Parents fret that they are unhappy and maladjusted. But the truth is quite different: Introverted children are creative problem solvers. Introverted children love to learn. Introverted children have a high EQ (emotional IQ) and are in touch with their feelings. They take time to stop and smell the roses, and they enjoy their own company. They are dependable, persistent, flexible, and lack vanity. How can parents help their introverted children discover and cultivate these wonderful gifts? Help is here. Written by Dr. Marti Olsen Laney, author of The Introvert Advantage with 74,000 copies in print, The Hidden Gifts of the Introverted Child fully explains introversion as a hardwired temperament, not a disability, and tells just what parents need to do to help their child become the person he or she is meant to be—and succeed in an extroverted world. Beginning with a 30-question quiz that places a child on the introvert/extrovert continuum, The Hidden Gifts shows parents how to foster a climate that allows introverted kids to discover their inner strengths; schedule ways for a very young innie to recharge those batteries and teach an older child to do it for him- or herself; create a harmonious household with siblings, and parents, of different temperaments; help innies find success at school, sports, parties, and other group activities.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

"Vivid and engaging."—Publishers Weekly, starred review Embrace the Power Inside You It's no wonder that introversion is making headlines—half of all Americans are introverts. But if that describes you—are you making the most of your inner strength? Psychologist and introvert Laurie Helgoe unveils the genius of introversion. Introverts gain energy and power through reflection and solitude. Our culture, however, is geared toward the extrovert. The pressure to get out there and get happier can lead people to think that an inward orientation is a problem instead of an opportunity. Helgoe shows that the exact opposite is true: introverts can capitalize on this inner source of power. Introvert Power is a blueprint for how introverts can take full advantage of this hidden strength in daily life. Revolutionary and invaluable, Introvert Power includes ideas for how introverts can learn to: •Claim private space •Bring a slower tempo into daily life •Deal effectively with parties, interruptions, and crowds Quiet is might. Solitude is strength. Introversion is power. "A modern-day Thoreau."—Stephen Bertman, author of The Eight Pillars of Greek Wisdom

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

For anyone who loved Susan Cain’s Quiet, comes this practical manifesto sharing the joys of introversion… This clever and pithy book challenges introverts to take ownership of their personalities...with quiet strength. Sophia Dembling asserts that the introvert’s lifestyle is not “wrong” or lacking, as society or extroverts would have us believe. Through a combination of personal insights and psychology, The Introvert’s Way helps and encourages introverts to embrace their nature, to respect traits they may have been ashamed of and reframe them as assets. You’re not shy; rather, you appreciate the joys of quiet. You’re not antisocial; instead, you enjoy recharging through time alone. You’re not unfriendly, but you do find more meaning in one-on-one connections than large gatherings. By honoring what makes them unique, this astute and inspiring book challenges introverts to “own” their introversion, igniting a quiet revolution that will change how they see themselves and how they engage with the world.

Would it surprise you to know that Joanna Gaines, Abraham Lincoln, Albert Einstein, Oprah, Jerry Seinfeld, C. S. Lewis, Max Lucado, and Meryl Streep are all introverts? Even though introverts make up half the population, most people still don't fully understand what it means to be one.

Instead, they need to truly understand who God created them to be so they can avoid pitfalls like insecurity or anxiety and bravely offer their gifts to the world. In this transformative book, Holley Gerth dives into the brain science behind introversion to help you understand the psychological, relational, and spiritual aspects of being an introvert. She explores how introverts can make meaningful connections, experience quiet confidence, cultivate soul-filling solitude, exercise unexpected influence, and much more. If you're an introvert, or if you love, lead, or share life with an introvert, you need this empowering, insightful book!

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Experience the book that started the Quiet Movement and revolutionized how the world sees introverts—and how introverts see themselves—by offering validation, inclusion, and inspiration “Superbly researched, deeply insightful, and a fascinating read, Quiet is an indispensable resource for anyone who wants to understand the gifts of the introverted half of the population.”—Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY People • O: The Oprah Magazine • Christian Science Monitor • Inc. • Library Journal • Kirkus Reviews At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over working in teams. It is to introverts—Rosa Parks, Chopin, Dr. Seuss, Steve Wozniak—that we owe many of the great contributions to society. In Quiet, Susan Cain argues that we dramatically undervalue introverts and shows how much we lose in doing so. She charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal throughout the twentieth century and explores how deeply it has come to permeate our culture. She also introduces us to successful introverts—from a witty, high-octane public speaker who recharges in solitude after his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps into the power of questions. Passionately argued, impeccably researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, Quiet has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how they see themselves.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

An Introvert in an Extrovert World: Essays on the Quiet Ones is a multi-disciplinary anthology about introversion in the world of extroversion. Susan Cain’s book, Quiet, recently addressed the complexities of an issue that was initially raised by Carl Jung, and this anthology expands the analysis of the challenges faced by those who are considered to be introverts – those who prefer reading to partying, listening to speaking – living in a world of people who cannot understand their quieter ways. Introverts are innovative and make significant contributions, but dislike self-promotion. They derive their energy from quiet rejuvenation, as opposed to acquiring renewed energy from being surrounded by, and interacting with, multitudes of people. That they are typically labeled “quiet” often suggests negative connotations. However, from Van Gogh’s Sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer, the contributions of the “quiet ones” have made an immeasurable and invaluable impact on our society. An Introvert in an Extrovert World contains analyses of popular culture, literature, television, film, and social media, as well as poignant personal narrative examples of the lives of these two contrasting personality types. Examples of the pain, conflict, repression, and even humor related to introversion in everyday life are manifested in this collection of articles that span the spectrum of human nature. The volume looks at the unlikely professions that the populace would attribute to the introvert: from teacher/professor and actor to politician and even gladiator. The reader is given an understanding of different characters in literary works and their connection to introversion, visits the spectrum of social media and the pluses and minuses therein, and is provided with examples of how to promote one’s writing for publication whilst being an introvert. Within the pages of this book, there are many and varied topics and intuitive insights traversing several situations that relate to the “quiet” world of introversion.

“Secrets about what introverts think, desire, and feel . . . An intimate line to the wisdom of introverts—without the awkward introduction and small talk.” —Laurie Helgoe, PhD, author of Introvert Power If there is a hidden part of you that no one else sees; you have a vivid inner world of thoughts and emotions that your peers and loved ones can’t seem to access; you’ve been told you’re too “quiet,” “shy,” “boring,” or “awkward”; your habits and comfort zones are questioned by a society that doesn’t seem to get the real you; you might be an introvert. Drawing from scientific research, in-depth interviews with experts and other introverts, and her personal story, Jenn Granneman reveals the clockwork behind the introvert’s mind—and why so many people get it wrong initially. Whether you are a bona fide introvert, an extrovert anxious to learn how we tick, or a curious ambivert, these revelations will answer the questions you’ve always had: What’s going on when introverts go quiet? What do introvert lovers need to flourish in a relationship? How can introverts find their own brand of fulfillment in the workplace? Do introverts really have a lot to say—and how do we draw it out? How can introverts mine their rich inner worlds of creativity and insight? Why might introverts party on a Friday night but stay home alone all Saturday? How can introverts speak out to defend their needs? With other myths debunked and truths revealed, The Secret Lives of Introverts is an empowering manifesto that guides you toward owning your introversion by working with your nature, rather than against it, in a world where you deserve to be heard.

Introverts! Are You Ready To Tell The World To Shut Up? You know you would never do that because you are an introvert. That doesn't mean you are not tired of being labelled as a loner, anti-social or that you are seen to have some type of personality defect that needs to be cured. When did quiet become an abnormality? Sadly since the beginning of time it seems. The people on the outside edge of the social circles or “quiet ones” have always been taking the brunt of everyone's misunderstanding and ridicule. There is nothing wrong with being an introvert in a predominately extrovert world so don't believe the hype. There are many advantages introverts enjoy actually and they are revealed inside. What if there was a way for you to release your fears of social gatherings and even enjoy them? How about excelling at public speaking leaving those extroverts dumbfounded as to who you just became?

It is important to introverts to be true to themselves and trying to be artificial or fake causes them great pain. Does that sound like you? Are You Really An Introvert? You might be an Introvert if… you only talk to the person you came with at the party you feel alone even in a crowd you only sit in aisle seats and many other signs are found inside The author is an introvert that people close to him would describe as an extrovert. That is because he, not unlike you possibly, spent many years in a career that made him be something he was not naturally good at doing. Managing a mulit-million dollar company, dealing with hundreds of people daily and handling over fifty employees schedules, personal development and at the end of the day their problems. If you are a true introvert you may have screamed just reading that. Needless to say he is no longer there and is happily creating books in his basement while still enjoying socializing with friends. Contrary to popular belief, introverts do have friends. The main difference is most of our friends are true friends that we deeply care about. The author discovered even more about himself and being an introvert while writing this book.
